Need more info: What type of vaginal infection? How was it treated and how long has it been under treatment? Was this sexually transmitted? What did her ob/gyn say?
Dr. Vanita Patel

Atleast 2 wks: Again it depends on what type of vaginal infection was she treated for. If its an STI you need to wait until the repeat cultures are negative.
